Lampanelli -- Westboro Protest

= $44,000 for Charity

5/21/2011 4:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lisa Lampanelli counted 44 protestors from the Westboro Baptist Church at her show last night -- so, as promised, she's donating $44,000 to a gay rights charity in their name.

0915_lisa_lampanelli_Reg_TMZ_01Lisa said she'd fork over $1,000 to the Gay Men's Health Crisis for every protestor that showed up to her show in Topeka, Kansas -- home of the WBC -- as a way of sticking it to the anti-gay group.

After the show, she tweeted, "Thanks to these a-holes, $44,000 will be donated to the GMHC!!!"

joey _ I love TMZ 'til ya piss me off!    

Lizzimer - Since Superman does take the Bible literally, we don't want to tire him out. I am more than sure he must be busy now, studying "The Book" for tomrrow's sermon (oh wait, he knows EVERYTHING & he is always Right!) and not involving himself with something below his righteousness, like blogging on a gossip website! :O
p.s. I heard Superman (the character) was bisexual...............I wonder if he'll change his blogging name now?

Hopefully other celebraties may join Lisa. I do not understand why pick out homosexuals only. How are they a threat and not others? Last time I check the bible also condemn adultery, ***********, and drunks. Maybe they envy the courage from the homosexual community to be able to be open in the public.

People love to hate. It makes them feel good about themselves, at least at first. If you use Westboro's actions to prop up your own bigotry against certain groups (such as Christians), then you are exactly like they are (only _you_ don't have the balls to be as unfashionable), and they have won. Or--and I suppose this is a better way to put it--you have both lost. Please try to fight hate with love. If you find that you can't--then maybe you need God more than you thought.
